Moss, algae, dirt and lichen on roof tiles is a big problem Roof algae are a country-wide issue, there are several culprits that grow on roofs making a good roof look a mess, one is a bacteria "Gloeocapsa Magma". Other organisms like mildew and algae are unsightly but not as destructive as some of the more aggressive bacteria such as fungus, moss and lichens. These algae, mould, mildew, bacteria, lichen and moss directly decompose and break down roofing materials.
What are lichens?
These are typically off-white or black in colour and are extremely difficult to remove from roof tiles, They are a combination of algae and fungi living in a symbiotic relationship to that benefits them both. They embed themselves into the tile surface and cannot be removed from the basic moss removal process and require specialist chemicals to kill and dislodge them.
Moss Removal From Roofs
We start by surrounding the house with tarpaulin to protect your property and collect moss that falls off the roof. We also cover downpipes to prevent blockages. Roof moss is removed by manual scraping using specialist tools that are attached to long reach extendable poles up to 6 metres or more in length. We usually work from ladders at the gutter line although may also access the roof using roof ladders if appropriate and safe to do so without damaging tiles.
